    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone had any success with reed.co.uk finding a job in UK? I think I will be moving in London at the end of September and looking for work in Managerial or Marketing position as a new experience in UK, but I don't know if reed.co.uk is as good as the site shows it to find a job.

    Any tips/shares welcomed!

    Reed are on of the UK's top recruitment companies.
    If you have the right credentials they will find you a position.

    Good luck!

    The national daily newspapers have job ads best day - Thursday!
    Try
    telegraph.co.uk
    thisislondon.com/

    A useful tip if you do not find the exact job that suits you, as a stopgap get a temp xmas job or similar which will pay enough for food and rent...

    Good Luck...:cool:

    Thanks all!

    Hope to find one that suits me so I can get some UK experience and references as well. $$ go pretty fast in London, no matter how much you have, its like a Hummer on steroids...

    This. Most people I know getting employed right now in the marketing space are getting head hunted through industry connections.

    Reed is great mainly cause a ton of other recruitment agencies advertise on the site, plus they sent me a free book when I signed up recently. Try Indeed.co.uk

    Don't knock that as a bill payer.
    Could be two months before you get paid if you are looking for a
    professional position.
    Money coming in is better then no money coming in.

    If you do decide to make the move hit me up, I live and breath London.

    I got a few calls via reed - but the only thing is you got to be in the UK for that, they don't even send mails out of the country, even when I used to live on Ireland.
    be aware of Agencies the most recruit only for Temping,sent you PM too ,-)

    Knocking on doors wearing a suit and carrying a professional looking CV is another good idea!
